Egad, I thought "brain worms" were just songs that you can't get out of your head!

Thank you. I'll need that phrase now that these creatures have taken ownership of the phrase "brain worms".

But it was only fantasy
The Wall was too high
As you can see
No matter how he tried
He could not break free

...And the worm ate into his brain.

Cooties is just slang for head lice.

As for you, you may wish to ask the doctor to put some stem cells up there. But don't end up like the alzheimer's patient who went to a non-reputable stem cell researcher. He ended up with a fetus in his head.
